From time to time, I use my limited social connections to try to resolve an issue. This is going to be another one of those times, because I simply cannot find something. I am asking my readers for a little assistance on both a source as well as information on an elusive strain of sweet potato.
I first heard of these several months ago in passing, from RidgeRunner. He has a work associate, Hank, that will speak for hours on the joys of various varieties of sweet potatoes. The topic is also one of my favorites, though I am far from an expert on varieties. My interests fall more under the heading of “ways to eat them, no matter the variety”. I recently had the opportunity to meet and speak
Sweetness, productivity, and flavor were all talked about. However, the most interesting sweet potato topic was regarding a variety that turned a shade of green when cooked. This is where I need help…
Hank told me he understood that it was a variety called “Hayman”, and originated on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. It is a poor producer, but has a remarkably sweet flavor, sweeter than anything else Hank had tasted before or since in a sweet potato.
So, my question to you is this, have any of you ever heard of a “green” sweet potato? Have you ever grown them?? And if so, how can I get my hands on some?
Let me know, please…
